Like all luxury hotels in London rates fluctuate quite dramatically, even day by day for the same room. As a broad guide if the hotel is in a business orientated district of London, room rates will be cheaper at the weekend, leisure oriented districts the reverse.

Novotel hotels in London are large (typically around 200 bedroom), modern purpose-built hotels. The Novotel hotels in

London tend to be located in locations convenient for business, rather than leisure districts like the West End theatre district.

Nevertheless, Novotel can offer very good value, and these hotels are especially good for family weekend breaks. As the Novotels in London are biased towards business, they have rooms to fill at the weekend. Children can often stay free and there are free breakfasts available too for the little ones.
